Kriya for Elevation and the Meditation for Protection and Projection Coming from the Heart Center

Kundalini Yoga Class led by Tiaga Harprem Singh.


Kriya for Elevation

The Kriya for Elevation is a set that will act as an energetic and physical tune up for our bodies. The exercises are set up to systematically open up the spine from bottom to top. This will circulate the prana and apana in the body, balance each of the chakras and will allow the kundalini energy to rise up through the spine. Opening the lungs and bringing our minds into a place of alertness we can strengthen our electromagnetic field. This kriya also offers a deep release for the sciatic nerve, or the life nerve. When we relax this nerve we are able to increase our flexibility, release tension in the low back, and it will allow us to feel more connected to the Earth. Increasing flexibility in the body inspires more flexibility in life, we are more able to roll with what life offers while remaining open to possibilities.

Meditation for Projection and Protection Coming from the Heart Center

Aad Guray Nameh
Primal Wisdom, to you I bow

Jugaad Guray Nameh
Wisdom through the Ages, to you I bow

Sat Guray Nameh
True Wisdom to you I bow

Siri, Gur Davay Nameh
Great unseen wisdom, wisdom that is all around us, to you I bow

We will be chanting the Mangala Charan Mantra during this meditation. This mantra is a mantra of protection. We chant this at the beginning of every kundalini yoga class for this purpose. When we say the first three line we send energy to the left, behind us, and to the right and when we say the last line we have energy circulating all around us. With every recitation of the mantra our auras become stronger, brighter, and more able to deflect negativity. This mantra guides us to our hearts deepest truth and being. Reciting this mantra clears our doubts opening us to guidance and protection. It surrounds our magnetic fields with protective, white light.
